Tension

The air is thick and heavy
the tension runs full bore
it could be cut with a Knife

you walk around, stomping your feet and grumbling under your breathe
I move out of your way
I dare to ask a question. I dare to answer your comment

You look, and glare,
my shoulders tighten, my head raises slightly
I clench my teeth and paste a smile upon my lips

My eyes flash with anger
my mind thinks.. arrogance is intolerable
you meet my glare. we stand silent
waiting to see who will break away first

I hold my ground, you dare to speak
I reply scathingly
you fall silent and i move away

The air is thick and heavy
the tension runs full bore
it could be cut with a Knife

i go about my business, you avoid
All is silent, questions go unanswered
Looks pass between us
you look away and lower your head

My back straightens, backed into a corner I stand tall and proud
I hold my tongue and think its almost done
you mumble something, i move away
refusing to answer

i think to myself soon it will be done
I sigh, turn my back to you and go about my day
